Today Pizza Hut are holding interviews that last only 140 seconds at a recruitment event in America, according to Forbes. They are interviewing for a new social media manager, thus the 140 second reference to Twitter's 140 character limit, but interestingly they intend to hold the next round of interviews via Google+.
I assume this will involve a Google Hangout and will require some of the skills our students have been learning about whilst participating in our project. This is another example of the rise in video conferencing and webinar technology in recruitment. Click here to read the article in full.
About our project
In January 2014, we received the good news that we had been successful in our bid for an extension of our original project via the Jisc FE and Skills Development and Resources Programme – Embedding Activity. We will continue to use this blog to record our activities, outputs and achievements over the next months.
The aims of our Embedding project are:
- to build on the positive outcomes and outputs of our original webinar project
- highlight the key employability skills identified in webinars by the employers who took part in our original project
- produce a well structured and resourced blended learning course to teach students the skills of setting up and running a webinar as a 21st century employability skill
- continue to disseminate our project findings and offer support through Jisc Regional Support Centres to help embed webinar training for students as part of a tutorial or curriculum programme using a blended learning course.
